Giving Thanks and Rounding the Corner on Christmas

This past Thanksgiving week we were blessed by a visit from Scott's brother and his family. Matt and his wife Tracy and their 3 beautiful children, Jacob, Kelsey and Kate. We don't get to see them very often, sometimes only once a year. We had a ton of fun showing them around Colorado Springs. It was so awesome to see all the kids play and enjoy each others company. It was really great that they got to meet Mason. He took to them right away and had no trouble keeping everyone busy :)
During our week....
We visited Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, drove to the top of Pikes' Peak, ate doughnuts, saw big horned sheep, hiked Red Rocks, rock climbed, ate tons of turkey, opened Christmas presents, played at the park, played games, went bowling, listened to Taylor Swift A LOT and had tons of fun along the way.

More pictures coming soon!

We are thankful for so much! We were especially mindful that this was Mason's first Thanksgiving with his forever family. He loved all the company and food! Especially the dessert!

Now I am off to drag out Christmas decorations and lights. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
